The Keeper Of Israel - Poem by john chizoba vincent
THE KEEPER OF ISRAEL
At your feet Oh lord do I put all my troubles,
I am not giving up on you, the keeper of the keepers.
There is a piece of me who leaves when you are gone
Your face shall I seek when other seek idols.
Leave me not the almighty and keeper of the israelite.
When mother is gone and father in a strangeland
Unto you shall I commit my soul, the prodcer of my heart beats.
Thou art my light and salvation, who shall I fear?
Who shall tamper the work of thy hand oh pride of jacob? !
Seek ye the lord of host and I said to my soul:
'The lord of armies shall I seek and dwells with?
My mouth shall not cease to exalt thy name,
In the enemies camp for thou made my body your dwelling.
Who is man that you are mindful and careful of him?
Man is but a dust yet, you cares about his life
The phases and his iniquities are always abandoned.
Lead me to your paths, the keeper of Israelites,
So I shall not waste my days like the water sprinckled on the ground.
I will seek thy direction forevr in my heart,
Mind the drive within me to uphold your plan.
Oh God! My God never abandon thy hand made,
For unto me you have giving power to conquer.
The keeper of the israelites, the keeper of my soul;
You are my morning star, the yahweh.
Heal my land for in you I put my trust.
